AIMS To evaluate deformation parameters of an endocardial, mid-myocardial, and epicardial myocardial layer in different transmurality of myocardial infarction and assess whether layer-specific deformation analysis allows definition of infarct transmurality. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty-six patients (mean age 55 +/- 9 years, 38 men) with chronic ischaemic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction underwent two-dimensional echocardiography and contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (ceMRI).
